A Chinese city has issued a level three warning for the bubonic plague, also known as The Black Death, after a local farmer came down with a case.
The Black Death killed 75-200 million people across Eurasia and North Africa in the 1300's. It is caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis, which was spread by rats and lack of sanitation.

While China appears to have reduced coronavirus cases to near zero, other infectious threats remain, with local health authorities announcing a suspected bubonic plague case in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
Authorities in the Bayannur district raised the plague warning on Sunday, ordered residents not to hunt wild animals such as marmots and to send for treatment anyone with fever or showing other possible signs of infection.
While the plague can be fatal if not treated, it can be treated with antibiotics. However, bubonic plague can cause other issues, such as pneumonic plague.

China has largely eradicated plague, but occasional cases are still reported, especially among hunters coming into contact with fleas carrying the bacterium. The last major known outbreak was in 2009, when several people died in the town of Ziketan in Qinghai province on the Tibetan Plateau.
Along with the coronavirus, first detected in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year, China has dealt with African swine fever, which has devastated pig herds.
